Renault Pro+ at the Hanover International Motor Show

At the Hanover International Motor Show Renault Pro+ was showing off a range of custom conversions based on Renault Alaskan, the new one-tonne pick-up.

Alaskan is a robust, comfortable, powerful and ingeniously designed vehicle with exceptional off-road capabilities. It comes as a breath of fresh air on the pick-up scene, with an expressive design that starts with an imposing chrome-trimmed front end. The multi-link rear suspension and rugged fully-boxed frame contribute to what is an outstanding driving experience.

Renault Alaskan will be shipping in single - and dual-cab versions, in a chassis-cabin version with short or long bed, and with a wide or narrow body. The Alaskan release schedule starts in Latin America, on markets where both Renault and the pick-up format have strong historical footings. Alaskan will be shipping in Colombia by the close of 2016, with other countries worldwide following shortly after.
